, it's the same $700 billion that he voted for the ryan plan a couple times. closes the donut hole and it stands solvency of medicare for eight years. what i didn't hear was his plan. his plan is to privatize medicare. he wants to give seniors a voucher and once you spend your voucher you're on your own. if the premiums go up, you can't afford it, you're on your own. how do we fix it? there's a couple things we got to do. one we need to do some aggressive means testing. i know political season and i'm not suppose to say we will do anything like that. i believe in it. i don't think we can afford to buy donald trump's prescription drug. we can means test some of the medicare program and enact some of the savings program that are working. st. johns hospital in springfield, took their medicare population and with quality control and customer satisfaction, they were able to reduce $17 million in medicare payment that's were owed. as a result, they got a bonus of $4 million. that's what we need to do in a capitalistic system. spending less money rather than incentivizing more treatment.

[video clip] >> they voted against extending the middle class tax cuts. why? because they were holding it hostage to make sure they could continue their tax cuts. and romney adds another tax cut with a total cost to the economy of $1.70 trillion. it is $250,000

. regarding the debt and the deficit, there is this piece from "the washington post." in the debt crisis, ryan was on the sidelines. there is a " further in the body from a republican senator who set up a " i have never viewed it paul as one who gets into the fray from a negotiating standpoint. i do not mean that he cannot do it. i just mean he has chosen not to." becky is on the phone from michigan. caller: good morning. i was trying to think what year it was when ralph nader ran for president. you and only you as far as i know carried a debate. i think there were three people that were other parties. host: it was 2000. caller: i listened to those -- the ones that were not the mainstream democrats and republicans. even though i may not vote for them, that is not what is important. what is important is that every single one of them had at least one just terrific idea for solving some kind of big problem we have a. -- we have. to have those people up there with the democrats and republicans talking about things that have never been talked about before could get the people to start calling their
paul ryan and i mean this sincerely, these are both good family man and bay --no, i don't need your boos, we need your help. i want to be strict review -- -- i want to be straight with you. i have a bad reputation for being strait, telling you what i think. sometimes all of us -- all kidding aside, picking paul ryan, what governor romney did is he has given clear definition to all those big assertions he was making during his primary campaign. he talked a lot about a lot of things that paul ryan is talking about but the war in many details. by picking paul ryan and laying out why he was picking him, he picked paul ryan because paul ryan represents the ideological -- how can i say it -- the center of the republican party and the house of representatives. he said that is why he is picking him. now we don't have to guess about what governor running means when he talks about medicare vaguely and social security and education and all these things. it is almost like two incumbents running. paul ryan introduced the republican budget in the house of representatives controlled by republican
't like when he says wait until after the election before he tells us anything. ryan did the same thing this past sunday on the talk shows. he was asked to go more into specifics on the tax exemption. he said most people would not understand the math. how about giving me the arithmetic? host: what are you looking for tomorrow? caller: i would like to see how romney will spin his comments about the 40% of americans being freeloaders. my dad was a world war ii veteran. when he came back, he defended of the gi bill for all home loans. i guess he would be a freeloader according to romney. host: let's look at an article -- that sometimes. an independent caller in wisconsin, bill. caller: i am planning on watching tomorrow night. there's a lot of questions that i would be asking if i were there, of both of them. why have the democrats nor the republicans looked at our social security, which is going under? what has happened to all the ious that they have taken money from social security? when are the democrats and republicans going to decide to have to pay all of these back? that's the reason
. this claim by the republicans, i give it to pinocchios. obama will claim that are ryan's plan for medicare will for seniors to pay $6,400 more a year to make up for cuts in the program. this is an old democratic attack that has been around for a while. the problem is it is based on an earlier version of ryan's plan. that is another thing i have given two pinocchios. people should always be aware of dire predictions far off in the future. the $6,400 figure refers to an analysis of cbo estimates of a different, less generous ryan plan that goes to the year 2022. they make no estimates of the new version, except to say that beneficiaries might face higher costs. the plan was changed in other ways too. it changed the option of traditional medicare. it also decided to set the feature growth rate for medicare to the same matter accused by obama in his budget so there would not be a difference there. a study published recently by a journal of the american medical association suggests the average cost to additional medicare would be on the $800 more a year in the ryan plan if it had been in place
will not vote for a balanced budget like the ryan budget that my opponent voted for twice, which ends medicare and turns it over to private insurance companies. let's make sure when my opponent is voting for the big guys, corporations that ship jobs overseas, voting to give big oil more tax breaks, let's take care of the people here at home, make sure we are not balancing the budget on the backs of our seniors, backs of our veterans, and make sure we get our budget under control by ending wasteful spending and working together. >> thank you. >> my opponent does not care about balancing the budget. she does not care about the debt. she has had 14 years in congress to talk about it. this is the first time i have heard her say she does not like the $16 trillion debt we have. sunday is the day we have another trillion dollars for the fourth year in a row. imagine that. what is a trillion dollars? let's break it down to jobs. that is 20 million jobs at $50,000 apiece. i would rather take that debt, bring it together, and solve the problems we have in the country. here is the problem. our revenues 1
authorities sent rebels fighting bashar al-assad's government text messages reading game over. host: ryan in ports mouth, virginia. democrat, ryan, good morning to you whoosm do you think about media coverage so far? caller: it's good, but they got my name wrong. it's bryant. host: thanks, bryant. got to turn down the volume, bryant. just talk on the phone. there you go. caller: there you go. host: go ahead, brian. caller: i'm listening to c-span and everything, but i have to say that being a navy veteran and in the active reserves, i can tell you that mitt romney -- as a republican or a democrat, you want the truth. a millionaire, billionaire, whatever his money he made in the past, his fathers are blaming that he quotes a lot about coming from a poor nation , just doesn't buy it. the 47%, talking about it in meetings, billionaire friends, that's find to understand it. if you want to hold on, but what he said about the 47% is really bad. and my friends in the reserves, active duty, we're going to vote for president obama, ok? he has done great. now, you have to remember, he's only been i
was republican. you had mayor rahm emanuel, mitt romney and paul ryan were congratulating him. sometimes the democrats and republicans in washington are often more unified than is portrayed. the majority of this people are often the silent majority. you just don't hear them in means -- in mainstream media. host: recall from virginia on our line for independents. caller: good morning. guest: hi. caller: i am harold johnson from richmond, virginia. host: go ahead with your question or comment. caller: ms. goodman, thank you so much what to do for this country. let me ask you a quick question -- when you become a congressman or house of representatives, you take an oath of office to serve this country. yet, you take another oath from grover norquist saying that you will never raise taxes. i thought we are represented by one constitution and not two constitutions. how can he get away with if you not voted republican in not raising taxes, how does he get away with that? guest: people don't have power but others be so that with power. i think there is a force more power than an egg -- more pow
, the same 700 billion he voted for in the paul ryan plan a couple of times. it closes the dought hole and extends the solvency of medicare for eight years. what i did that here is his plan. his plan is to privatize medicare. he wants to give seniors a voucher. then you are on your own. if the premiums go up any cannot afford it, you are on your own. how do we fix it? we need to do some more aggressive means testing. i know i am not supposed to say we're gorda to do anything like that, but i believe in it. i do not think we can afford to prescriptionrump's' drugs. he can buy his own. we can enact savings programs that are working. st. john's hospital in springfield took the medicare -- medicare population and with quality and control and customer satisfaction they were able to reduce $17 million in medicare payments that were owed. as a result, they got a bonus of $4 million. that is incentivizing. we need to incentivize prevention and spending less money. many of the government's entitlement programs, medicare and medicaid are all coming to a cross. they are coming towards a financial
. mr. plummer endorsed the paul ryan budget which turns into a doctor program. he also, third, jobs. i have a clear and to the jobs plan which can look at on my website. mr. plummer has a 12-point plan which he has yet to fully release. apparently it endorses continued corporate welfare and ending regulations. we all know what happened when big banks regulation were eased. you've of the determination for which a bus has a better plan to make it better for working people in southern illinois. we do not know where the nation will be next week or next year. we do not know what series decisions will need to be made by our congressmen. so it is important for you to know who we are and how we make decisions. it is important for you to consider which of the candidates has proven experience, proven leadership, proven integrity. there are three drastically different visions. one is clear choice. [applause] >> mr. plummer? >> i want to thank everyone for being here tonight. i'd like to think in the organizations and other groups that helped but this event on. i have been crisscrossing this distr
that mitt romney deserves a chance with met right bridge -- with paul ryan. they have a solid plan to turn this country around, to save social security, not cutting it, like all the old people are being indoctrinated with. one party is pro-life. one party is pro-choice. if we want four more years of these excuses of blaming bush, of blaming anything you can but still keeping people stagnant without rewarding small businesses -- small businesses create 74% of the jobs in this country. obama wants to tax them. does that make sense to anyone? and we are paying $800 million on interest alone? we cannot sustain this. we need a change. especially you catholics, if you are voting for mr. obama, you may as well be complicity in the abortions taking place, because there are far too many and we need to solve these social and financial issues with a strong person who will defend our country, not make excuses that it is our fault for all of the things going on in the world. host: we will do this for about 25 more minutes, getting your thoughts. on campaign policy, governor romney and president obama s

tonight is for one thing and she is trying to tie heller to .aul ryan's budget plan democrats love to say that heller voted for the plan twice, once in congress and once in the senate. he was appointed to the senate last year when senator john ensign resigned. he voted for it twice. this will come up tonight. it is for her to say that dean heller wants to end medicare as we know it, and try to tie him to that. you have also seen heller running a little bit from romney annika ryan with romney's comments last week about the 47%. you have seen heller distance himself from that. she will also likely bring up the dream act that is a big deal in nevada. it is the state with the highest immigrant population. he has tried to retract latino voters and has -- in other ways about rates. host: when looking at the polling, what is the story in nevada? guest: basically, we have seen an lot of ties in the polls, and tonight there is a new poll coming out. a fresh poll information going into a light color poll. they have an automated or republican or democratic polls, and they honestly show one candidate
. paul ryan appears -- appeals to seniors. a scary eddie munster guy. here is mitt romney's money. chilling i know a guy that does a fake twiter account called "mexican mitt romney." he is a big smash on the twitter. politico named it one of the top-10 funniest fake twitter accounts. it plays off on the fact that mitt romney's dad was born in mexico in a mormon colony and was actually -- mitt romney might be the first chicano president. mexican mitt romney seems like a crazy mexi-mormon ranchero character. he says a lot of crazy stuff about the election. follow him @mexicanmitt. this is the curiosity rover being asked for its papers. here is the colombian secret service prosecution scandal. -- prostitution scandal. columbia, we are not just known for drugs anymore. [laughter] i promise you, the president has a big stick. here is obama giving the presidential medal of freedom to a personal friend of mine. a lot of people do not know the united farm workers invented the "yes, we can" slogan. obama took that and ran with it. at least he paid back with a metal. -- medal. the color is
of money. vice president -- vice- presidential candidate paul ryan has a plan to turn it into a voucher type program. i guess i'd like to hear specifically each of your vigs for the future of medicare. >> well, thank you for that question, lisa. i've already mentioned the fact that i got to see the difference that medicare makes in people's lives at a much earlier age than most do because i was raised by my grandparents. and my grandmother was on medicare by the time i was in my late teens. this is something that i regard as more than a program but a promise an one that we must keep. my opponent supports a plan to end medicare as we know it, to instead give seniors vouchers that outside, nonpartisan analysts have said will encrease out of pocket expenses for seniors over the first decade up to $6,000. and i know very few wisconsin seniors who can afford that sort of burden. we need to continue what we did in the affordable care act that extended medicare's solvency by nearly a decade. >> governor thompson. >> it's amazing to me that she has the audacity to say i did this, i'm not even i
to how he will fix the economy. use of paul ryan over the weekend talking about -- you saw paul ryan over the weekend talking about how he does not have time to explain the numbers in his budget. people want that explanation and are creeping back from the governor. guest: given the constraints of the debate format, they will not give chapter and verse from the town and its parent -- from the candidates. this is more important for mitt romney. he benefits as a challenger from standing on the same stage as the incumbent president of the united states, but there is a greater burden to convince the wavering voters, the 12 or 14 people that i've not made up their minds in this election. host: post-debate spin, howard kurtz, how important is that, and how social media plays a more important role? guest: the post-debate spin, i think it is critical, as people watched the debate, but they can make up their own mind, but that is an hour and half. what you get for the next several days or a week are the clips that are replayed, the chair by the commentators. you mentioned the al gore eye- rolling t
to do against dean heller? guest: she is trying to tie getler to paul ryan's bud plan. democrats like to say heller voted for the budget plan twice. he voted for it twice -- that line should probably come up tonight. she may say that he wants to end medicare as we know it and try to time to that. you have seen heller running ill but from romney and ryan -- running a little bit from romney and ryan. we may see that, as well -- we may see that come up as well. so, the dream act. shelley berklery supports the dream act and dean heller does not. host: when it comes to polling as far as this race, what is the story in nevada? guest: for polling? we have seen a lot of ties in the polls. there's a new poll coming out tonight which will be a fresh polling information going into the debate. a lot of recent polls have been automated or republican or democratic polls. they show one candidate up a few points or the other candidate up a few points. nobody breaking out in this race. president obama is still considered -- he has been up a few points in the polls. host: anything of note in how they'r
in the wake of paul ryan's vp selection. and the floor policy -- there was a spike and mitt romney went abroad -- the foreign policy, there was a spike when mitt romney went abroad. i believe aj invited us here and our job is to keep everyone here on the panel on this. >> think you're a very interesting. as our panelists make their presentation, maybe it least two items i thought would be interested to adjust -- the very interesting article and book out now by sasha eisenberg about the fact that the press cannot keep up with political consultants and social that parking experts. reporters basically are way behind the curve in this campaign. we think that is an interesting topic to take a look at. as well as the fact that in a wave of reporters, my impression is it looks like both candidates have succeeded for the most part in talking over the press, especially the traveling press, and making them almost irrelevant to the campaign. let us start off with amy davidson. >> can everybody hear me? i will start by addressing what he does talk about a little bit. even in the title of the panel, is thi

-class folks. when you think about how republicans need to talk about it, that the funny thing about mid ryan -- ryan and ryanism. he has until some respects gotten it right. you want to talk about how we care about the safety net. in matters of law to was. a debate dynamics decided, we need to have this. it is not some kind of side thing but an important part of making the whole system work. the problem is that the reason why he excites a lot of activists is for other reasons -- the way he sometimes uses very apocalyptic language about free enterprise and what have you. that is one reason why governors have a big advantage. if you look at mitch daniels, for example, he talked about very conservative ideas. he will back collective bargaining rights at the the history. -- he rolled back collective bargaining rights in his stae. he was able to reach beyond that base and talk about how to improve the provision of services. he was deeply interested in the workings of the medicaid program. and making it more accessible. i think that is a very attractive model. unlike the conservatives i often thi
lobbyists in washington, d.c. paul ryan calls them loophole lobbyists. he is right. they are wearing thousand- dollar suits and getting paid god knows what to protect these loopholes. you can make a case. it sound like you are making the case for the most important thing in the world in each one of these. but you have to believe there is going to be a big pay-off, and i happen to believe there is. senator fisher and i agree with the need to cut the corporate rate. but you are not going to do that unless you are doing the right thing for our country and cutting back in the other deductions. 0er wise all it does is increase the size of the deficit. >> thanks. we do need to simplify the tax code. it is 72,000 pages long, and there is by patterson support to do that. -- bipartisan support to do that. we need to lower the corporate tax rate. we are at 35%, the highest among our trading partners. i is suggested over a year ago to lower it to 24%. we need to repeal the death tax. here in nebraska we have done that. we need to see that happen at the federal level as well. we need to repeal t
